Thank you for asking.

I was lucky to get GeorgeRA's leftover MA6700 which he purchased for his van. It wasn't quite enough so I got some SM600L through a contact at 3M. SM600L is from the Automotive group and MA6700 is from Marine. They are the same material except SM600L has black scrim on both sides.

I am currently working with 3M to acquire a number of master rolls of SM600L. It takes about a 1/4 of a 60" wide roll (45feet) to insulate a typical Sprinter. I will sell Thinsulate to DIY Sprinter enthusiasts via this forum. Prices will be competitive and you will be able to order a smaller quantity based on your needs. Lead time at this point appears to be at least 7 weeks.
